The macro retail space planning software solution

Creating profitable store layouts requires the meticulous positioning of categories and products to ensure selling space is optimised and customers are satisfied.

Optimising store performance involves the assessment of many different data and this is where StoreSpace® fits in. Developed in-house and based on a wealth of practical experience, StoreSpace® enables retailers to optimise their stores with accurate information in an intuitive and integrated planning environment.

What is StoreSpace®?

Using AutoCAD, your store plans and our StoreSpaceOnline portal, StoreSpace® provides a range of tools that simplify and speed the floor planning process. Empowering you to maximise sales and improve profitability by achieving optimal layouts and testing scenarios.

StoreSpace® consists of three key elements:

1. StoreSpaceOnline portal

StoreSpaceOnline is a cloud-based database populated from AutoCAD that stores and reports on all the retail assets across your estate. You can also easily view plans, report on data and share information with colleagues without requiring an AutoCAD licence to access.

Photographic records using our StoreView virtual tours, can be stored for easy reference to the physical reality, reducing the need for costly store visits.

2. StoreSpace for AutoCAD planning toolset

Integral to StoreSpace® is our StoreSpace for AutoCAD add-in that enables your retail planners to work productively using model stores to guide the floor planning process.

By building intelligence directly into your existing AutoCAD block library, floor plans are kept up to date, and reports are based on accurate information.

3. Integration with Nielsen Spaceman® and other internal systems

StoreSpace works in isolation or can closely integrate with the Nielsen suite and your other systems adding communication with all store planning stakeholders.

As a Nielsen Connected Partner, we can link your micro and macro planning systems driving the store to planogram relationship from inside AutoCAD. Available planograms can be planned directly onto your AutoCAD fixtures and available sales, movement and profit data can be ‘heat-mapped’ onto your plans helping to guide the planning process.

StoreSpace® – Your essential data management tool

By providing a robust reporting system, accurate up to date information and a highly productive planning environment, StoreSpace will enable you to optimise your retail space efficiently and effectively.

A number of UK’s leading retailers, including Asda, Argos, Marks and Spencer, Sainsbury’s, House of Fraser, Waitrose and Aurum Holdings are currently using StoreSpace® and we have developed the software to integrate with the way they work.
